LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A central Kentucky man was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison after he confessed to a murder for hire plot.

21-year-old Ryan Dean of Washington County admitted that in June of 2009 he solicited an undercover Kentucky state police detective to murder another person in return for ten pounds of marijuana.

Dean also requested the detective cut off a tattoo from the intended victim's leg as evidence of the murder and for Dean to keep it as a momento.
